Early ’80s Seattle Basement Show Highlight

Posted: August 22, 2011 in Interview Clips

In this audio clip, writer/editor/zine creator Dawn Anderson recalls an early ’80s basement show featuring noise bands Limp Richerds (and yes, it’s Richerds) and Mr. Epp.  Dawn talks about the unusual method of percussion employed by the Limps’ Ross Guffy.  Dawn mentions Steve Turner and Mark Arm (both later played with Green River, the Thrown Ups, and Mudhoney.)  [Turn up the volume all the way on this clip…for some reason it came over really soft when I transferred the audio from tape.]

Author note: I have to give Dawn some props.  She is probably my favorite writer—among an extremely talented bunch—from the entire ’70s and ’80s Seattle music era.

Date of interview: May 30, 2007.  Used with permission.
